I have traded stocks since I was a teen. I have been familiar with Dr. Elder for years. Along the way, I have read many books on trading. This ranks among the best.

Dr. Elder breaks the art and science of trading into three pillars. He calls them his three M’s:

∙ Mind
∙ Market
∙ Management

The key to winning the trading game is to win the battle within your mind. Dr, Elder, himself a practicing psychiatrist, explains how to develop discipline and to avoid the traps caused by emotional trading.

Second, he shows how to identify good trades using charts and computerized indicators. In remarkably clear and concise language, he explains the indicators and how to combine them to develop your own trading system.

Finally, he discusses importance of money management. The successful trader manages risk. Dr. Elder lays down the rules to harness it.

After reading this book, there is no doubt in my mind why this book has achieved a “Classic” status. It is well deserved. Dr. Elder has distilled more than 25 years of trading experience into a readable and insightful tome. Every trader who is serious about his or her markets should read it. Its gems of knowledge will cause it to become dog-eared in no time.

This book is widely regarded by experienced investors and traders as one of the most authoritative and useful books on trading shares and other financial instruments. It is challenging to read and definitely not for beginners, but comprehensive and highly informative. ( )
